I am thinking it must be the content of the pdf that is the problem.
If there are a few jpgs, then you are bound to have no compression at
all - infact you might see increase in the size.

I learnt that pdf, gif jpg, mpg are already a compressed format and
cannot be compressed.

(I am wrong most of the times)
